A pair of wedge-tailed eagles have successfully reared a fledgling this season. In this photograph you can see that the chick is nearly fully grown . Fluffy down feathers can still be seen on its legs but the bird appears close to leaving the substantial nest made of sticks and fresh gum leaves in an old grey box tree. Thanks to Leslie for sharing this lovely photo . It makes me very happy to know that these iconic birds of prey continue to successfully breed in our area. Photo by Val La May.
